Why locals love it

Graffiti started appearing on this ordinary wall during the Communist era in 1980´s as the protest against the regime. The Communist police tried repeatedly to whitewash it but they never managed to keep the wall clean as people kept comming and paint "messages of love and peace" at night.

Why you should visit it

The wall is now very popular among young artists and tourists. The original portrait of Lennon is no longer visible as it got lost under layers of new paintings.

Not exactly what I expected, but still quite an emotional experience touching this wall of remembrance.
